2004 Concerned Philosophers for Peace Meeting:
Globalization and Its Discontents
University of North Carolina at Charlotte
October 28-31, 2004

Airport Information

The closest airport, Charlotte/Douglas International Airport, is 15 miles from the university. Charlotte is a USAir Hub, but you can often get better fares on other carriers through travel agents and
The Airport website has information about taxi rates and driving directions from the airport.

Hotel Information

We have reserved rooms at two hotels in the neighborhood of the university. The hotels are across the street from one another. They are within a short walk of restaurants and shopping. The Hilton is bigger, a little fancier and closer to the shops. The walk to campus is quite long, however, so we have also arranged for a 15 person van to make several trips at designated times each day between the hotels and campus.

The deadline for making reservations for BOTH hotels is midnight on October 14. To get the approved rate and access to the reserved rooms, when making the reservation please say you are with “The Concerned Philosophers for Peace Conference and UNC Charlotte.”
